6:51am
the sports director of wjz-13 and the host of one of the best radio talk shows in all of baltimore. you hear him every day with bulldog on 105.7 the fan. >> i know this early means it's the start of baseball season or football season. i am here to kick off the football. the ravins will do that. they'll kick it off against rex ryan and the new york jets. for the raven's fans, it's been a great deal of optimism on offense. you have a quarterback who's in his third year and he's lead the team to the play offs and you have a running back drafted the same year as the quarter back and he could be the offensive player of the year. and you've added a wide
6:52am
receiver in boldin and stallworth who will miss the first six games at least. it appears that the offense is loaded and ready for a league in which the rules are more towards the wide open offense. the ravens adapted to that and they're ready to run with it. what could slow this down? we have questions in the line in particular with the right tackle. don't be surprised in he is the right tackle. we'll find out. debater is hurt and he missed most of the preseason. en on the leftside, you have michael oher and he was strong in the rookie season. we'll see if he can lock that position down and we've talked about the defense. ray lewis is ageless. he's still the leader on the defense. they've lost a few guys in the
6:53am
defensive secretary. mainly ed read. and he's out for at least the first six games and they lost the starting corner in fox worth. if that offense can offset the defense, you know, all of the optimism could be for a good reason. we'll find out tonight. the first step on a long road that could lead the ravens to the super bowl in dallas. also, billy, the kicker if realtime team, that was a big deal for the team. well, it was steven and that cannot last the entire season. he missed a kick at minnesota. and shane was brought in this off season and that brought in many. he was going to be the guy to kick the team all the way up to the super bowl. and he was better on kick offs
6:54am
as well as accuracy and we've seen many times, often times these games come down to the three points. it will be up to him. and that's how it lays out, fellows. and mark, it's going to come down to health. it's going to come down to the physical stability of the team. it always does. whatever team as they move towards the play offs. flash that's the one variable we can't control. that's right and we've seen that and as we mentioned, the season starts out with a few guys hurt and reid and fox worth and hey, just yesterday, philadelphia loses its quarterback and the lions lose their quarter back and people want to know why did the ravens get bulger to back up flacco and that's why. bulger played 8 years and he's
6:55am
thrown for 4000-yards in a season and that's a guy who you can turn to that's not as good, but he's good. injurys are key and they are in a physical game like football. we'll see you tonight, mark and bulldog and myself and j. kart will join you tonight at joe washington and we'll be with you guys until 11:00 celebrating a hopeful raven's win. we're looking forward to another football season and thank you, and i hear you on the radio later on. done deal. mark, of course, bulldog and wjz-13, the fan. >> well, i have news head lines for you here. a child discovered a man and woman dead inside of a house and the police believe that the death of the two could be a murder suicide. they were involved in a custody
6:56am
battle according to the court records. they're now cared for by a relative. and baltimore city police are looking for a black mercedes. the 25-year-old was killed saturday night in a crash in east baltimore. he was racing a motorcycle at the time. >> hope -- opening statements are going to begin in the death of ken harris soon. he was shot two years ago. two weeks ago, the dna was linked to a man. and the 22-year-old gary colins and the 17-year-old jerome williams are charged and on trial. new details from a man who escaped from the police custody. palmer could be heading to washington, d.c. and west virginia. he faked a medical emergency as
